As part of my nightly route on the way home from work, I stop by the "Quick Stop
" on the way home and grab a bagel with cream cheese and turkey
. Last night should have been like any other night, but I while wandering by the magazine rack while my bagel
was heating in the microwave I chanced to spy the cover of some teen-bop tiger-dupe type girls magazine
. This is what it said next to a picture of five boys dressed in leather posed like primped little puppets
I know little girls would sleep better with this little delusion, but lets face reality, N'Sync might be fuck crazy
, but I highly doubt they live to give hugs to 13 year old bippies
. Why does anyone become a "rock star"? To fuck and do drugs
; it's just a grisly fact of life.
Almost to further illustrate
my point, as I was entering the 24 hour cafe down the street from the "Quick Stop", I had to step over a junkie
on the sidewalk. Life doesnt always smell like roses; tricking our children into having a candy glazed view of reality
makes them soft, stupid and easy targets.
It would be wonderful if everyone could have a "nice" childhood, but you don't have to be tricked and lied to all the time in order to have a healthy
and happy life.
Do your children a favor, take an axe to the TV
and don't let them anywhere near a magazine
